important may be at this moment, the state of florida already 41% of precincts reporting because they do so automatically, and largely because -- there are two times in florida. the eastern time, we all know this from the 2000 election, the eastern time zone has been closed for an hour. the panhandle, which means fort walton beach, panama city, pensacola, all the counties around the panhandle had just closed, so their numbers are not yet in. the old saying about florida is the for the north you go, the father southern you get, which means the panhandle is republican territory. the southeast part of the status democratic territory. what decides florida is the interstate corridor that stretches from tampa to orlando and all the way to daytona beach and some small communities in between. that area there will decide florida. that area is in. the panhandle is just coming in. let's look at florida again. it is lopsided at the moment. you can see or you will be able to see in a moment that in a state of florida with 41% of precincts reported, there is a lopsided lead at the moment for barack obama
.m. or future days. the romney campaign is watching closely florida, virginia and ohio. there are very few victory strategies contemplated by boston, the romney campaign, that don't include the buckeye state and they're concerned about signs of high turn-out in the northern part of ohio where the detroit auto bail-out was a big mallet which the president pounded mr. romney. on the southern border of ohio along kentucky, particularly along cincinnati, hamilton county, big optimism and turn-out for the republican campaign. virginia, florida, ohio romney believes so go though so goes the country. romney has only written one speech, a victory speech. >> carl cameron. let's get straight to the president's camp in chicago and ed henry. >> shep, the president has been getting very wistful. it started in iowa what started the obama movement. he said today he was crying partly because it was cold out and thinking back four years ago and thinking about everyone turning out for him last night. he is hoping for big turn-outs in big battlegrounds. i got off the phone with one of the president's senior
there in a second. hang on to that thought. greg, you and i take care of florida. want to go first? >> greg: i want to talk about pennsylvania. >> eric: hold the thought. >> greg: bill clinton is in philly. did you hear what he said to the crowd there? he said who wants a president who will knowingly and repeatedly tell you something that isn't true? apparently he is running again. who knew it? he's testing the waters. did he do it third term? are we talking about florida? florida is tight. you know what it is? it's getting your blood test results. the action is quick, takes a week to get results and it could be catastrophe. >> bob: taken in the early morning. florida. >> eric: florida -- put the graphic up one more time. understand something about florida. florida is interesting. the panhandle which is an earlier time zone so you have two different time zones in florida. also florida breaks down this way. the southern part of florida is typically a democrat win. from the mid-state down, i-4 corridor that cuts the state in half. south of it, democrats. north of the i-4 corridor is typically republi
, polls close early, 13 electoral votes, 48/47, president obama on top. state of florida, two-point lead for president obama. the state of ohio, most people have seen as the hinge point of this election, president obama's up 51/45. let's look at where the battleground states stand. if you average polls taken on the real clear politics website, of the nine battle ground states romney is only leading in the average of those polls in the two of them, north carolina and florida. the other states, president obama's got a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb t
and they are behind and they are not catching up at this point. they will be in florida and virginia, two states you would assume by now they would have secured, they assume by now, they would secure, they understand the traditional or the battleground states which we have focused are not working out for them. now they are looking for somewhere desperately looking for somewhere to try and dislodge some electoral votes to win the election. that is not going to happen. >>chris: you bet your mustache on the president we securing person. how secure is your mustache? >>guest: i grant you the mustache will be right where it is today. and where it has been for 40 years so you know how serious a bet that was. >>chris: the key now is town out. the obama campaign has talked for years about how strong your ground game is. in ohio and what the romney camp says is happening in early voting and absentee balloting with the numbers on the screen. it is complicated. i hope you can see the graphic. they say, the romney camp, that 557,000 ohio democrats have voted early or gotten absentee ballot, up 155,000 from four
. >> we're waiting on florida right now florida is still too close to call. this of course is one of the t hotly contested states. florida too close to call. the polls are closed in florida. onto illinois where obama has taken illinois. as you can see there illinois is going to the president. maine also going to the president tonight. nbc news projecting president obama is the winner of maine. onto maryland where we are also seeing president obama take maryland. and that of course ten electoral votes. >> interesting. the state of massachusetts governor romney's home of course as governor at least being called for barack obama. also home to a very high profile senate race between senator scott brown and elizabeth warren of harvard. the woman who set up consumer protection bureau. mississippi is called for mitt romney. six electoral votes there and the state of missouri too early to call. >> new hampshire, we have been waiting on another hotly contested state. too close to call in new hampshire so far. this is four electoral votes and one of the hotly contested states new hampshir
, not only virginia but also florida in the southeast to be competitive in this race tonight, but that is not enough. as we move to the midwest he's going to have po pick off one of the key states in barack obama's fire wall, either ohio or wisconsin because you see what happens right there, if the president gets both ohio and wisconsin he only five votes away from an electoral lock. >> well, this is the difficult route that br has. he has to take the atlantic coasts sta s states and move i into the midwest and start picking off midwestern states. early in the night if he sees trouble in those, it's going to be a very difficult night for mitt romney. he has to win those three atlantic coast states. >> if he doesn't, if the president wins any one if we go back to the what if board in the middle. any one of these in play where he's ahead or tied he has 270 electoral votes. >> let's head off to richmond, virginia, with amy klobuchar robach. i know you're at a dnc headquarters. >> reporter: i'm wearing purple. it was completely coincidental but very appropriate because this is a
is basically what we're seeing right now. incredibly tight race that we are looking to florida, virginia, ohio, all of the state's right now they're too close to call for any indication of which way this is going to break. there has been an awful lot of confidence among the obama folks of the last few days, especially predicting a wind that only in the electoral college, but the popular vote. predicting it to go the other way. that confidence, they say, all comes from the fact that they had been seeing consistent leads in polls throughout the battle ground states, many of them throughout the country and certainly enough, they said, to take over the top of this. still and wait and see mode. a sense of confidence that you would possibly get from any type of candidate at this point in a race that is this close. and so well there is confidence to make it is to be expected that he would not hear anything else out of the obama campaign this early in such a close race. neil: okay. thank you. one of the state's we will be keeping a close eye on. keep in mind, nevada is interesting for a number of reas
and florida. if laura trevelyan is in miami. clyde is in cleveland. let's start with you. have aligned and as long there as they have been everywhere else in the country -- have the lines been as long there as they have been everywhere else in the country? >> they have been pretty long. at about 7:00 this morning, the actual stores open at 6:30 a.m., and there were already 20 people there. and it was a slow trickle. election officials are estimating about 70%, not as high in the previous election. but lorimar, millions have already voted in early voting -- but remember, millions have already voted in early voting in this state. we did see joe biden breeze in to try to shore up the final push for votes. president obama has had a bit of a lead during the last few months and it has tightened in the last few months -- few weeks. unemployment is lower. there are fewer foreclosures. there is a sense of optimism here and that has helped president obama, but it is tight. statistically, is still within the margin of error. we could be in for a long night. >> i hope not. thanks very much. laura
, and obviously florida knows something about storms. as a nation we warn of those to of the losses. we-- we mourn those who have been lost. i talk to the governors and mayors every day. i want people to know what i talked to them i talking on behalf of america, and i have told them we will be with them every step of the way until they have fully recovered from the hardships and a crisis, and we will do it together, because that is how we do it in the united states of america. [applause] as heartbroken as we of the end result of the images of families who let that affect it, we also been inspired seeing police officers and firefighters rushing into burning buildings and waiting water to save lives and neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy. leaders of different political parties working together to fix what is broken. we see a spirit that says no matter how bad a storm is, we will always bounce back. no matter how tough times are, we're all in this together. that we rise or fall as one nation and as one people. that spirit has guided his country along the improbable dirty for more than two
, david? >> florida and virginia right now. you want-- >> ifill: do you have a white board? >> i wish i did. i'm not that spiffy. we talked a lot about ohio. but to get to ohio mitt romney has to hurdle florida and virginia. and we've really got no real information but little whiffes of information, looking pret competitive in both places. so the romney people should be looking nervously at both those states. >> woodruff: why do you say that, because they thought they would be doing better? >> because of who is come out to vote, the exit polls. they looked close in those state and romney really has to win those. >> ifill: what information are you picking up? >> i'm always fasinated by david's whiffs, and i think virginia is interesting because they had to extend the voting hours in virginia, from normal closing. >> woodruff: based on long-- >> long lines that people were in lines, which i think-- democrats are always cheered by larger turnout. that's a rule of thumb. >> ifill: we just heard in virginia they had to keep the polls open or won't-- they won't report results until 8:00, even
say that. i need my beauty sleep. might not do much good, but i need my beauty sleep. florida is another one. that is a battleground state where of late mitt romney has been consistently going well. he has to do well. >> florida is another state. neil: and you have been busy campaigning. >> floridian more than viejo is a must win. neil: ohio. maybe pennsylvania. >> ohio is important, but if he can take florida and virginia, if romney can take florida and virginia and slips in ohio then colorado, maybe pennsylvania to make up for that. there are ways to do it, but virginia and florida are critical. neil: we always forget, mayor, that there are so many other races going on. thirty-three senate seats. republicans need a net gain of four senate seats. but if they have president romney, three. how likely is that? it will look like a gimme. not so much. neil: i see in early voting that murdoch's ahead. not by much, but still ahead. if murdoch wins, which people are wondering whether he can because of some of the controversial comments -- neil: he was the tea party backed candidate w
. >> gretchen: sticking to the election now. every hour and rally makes a difference. we have florida kelly wright in washington to lookk at the closing pitches. >> good morning as well. it is the final day before tomorrow, governor mitt romney is giving everything he's got to win the presidency. it is the last full day of campaigning for mitt romney. he will spend the day to urge people to get out and vote. he offers new leadership and faith in the american spirit. >> does anyone fear that the american dream is fading away and wondering if better jobs and paychecks are the thing of a past. i have a clear message. with the right leadership america is about to come roaring back. >> president obama went to colorado where he's in a very close race with governor and he won the state four years ago. >> this is not just a choice between two candidates and two parties, it is a choice of two visions for america. it is a choice between a return for the top down policiless that crashed our policy or the strong growing middle class base policies that are getting us out of a crisis. >> so both presiden
. >> provisional ballots could be a four-letter word in the coming days. >> that's right. >>> florida, another critical battle ground state. the campaign's final days were marked by controversy over the state's early voting. if it's clear if you do the math, for mitt romney to become president, he needs to win in florida. we're joined by ashleigh banfield in miami. good morning. >> the last republican president to actually take the white house without taking florida was warren harding back in '24. i suppose there's a first time to change that trend. john, 829 precincts in miami-dade and i'm just at one of them. i'm here two hours early. it's dark, it's lovely out. take a look behind me, though. are you ready for this? two hours until the polls open and we've already got a line of several people. i had a quick chat with some of them, john. already some of these people have waited in early voting lines for six hours. so they are very keen to get going. i want to show you quickly as i give you stats on some of the early voting by the way. we have 11.4 million registered voters in florida. we have
this election. >> trouble at the polls. long waits in early voting lines in ohio and florida, but put tempers to the test. >> let them vote! >> the other big wild card, sandy. a week after the storm recovery efforts are still winding slowly through the hardest hit. new jersey governor chris christie who praised president obama's response to sandy repeated his support for mitt romney. sort of. >> on tuesday i'm voting for mitt romney because i think he's the best guy for the job. it doesn't mean that i can't turn to the president of the united states of america and say to him, thank you, sir, for providing good leadership in this crisis. >> and whom do you trust? the grid iron predicts. a redskin hometown defeat favors the challenger but the lsu/alabama matchup offers good news for the incumbent. >> and good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in democracy plaza in new york city. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor, and managing editor of post politics.com and mark halperin political analyst for "time" and msnbc. so, first to you, chris, let's talk about the state of the r
after voters were going to the polls, including a heated contest in florida where con tro version shul republican allen west is trying to hold on to his seat there. also in palm springs, the late widow of sonny bono is not giving up her fight either. let's talk about the senate. surprising or not surprising? >> surprising, i guess, because the odds were against the democrats when this cycle first started. depending the seats up for grabs. the numbers are still changing. the numbers are final, final two races were called yesterday. 54 democrats will be in the new senate, including one independent. 45 republicans in the new senate. and then there's that one independent from maine, angus king, former independent governor. will he caucus with the democrat or republicans? the thought is the democrat which would bring them to 55. plus two from where they were in the last senate. remember, ashleigh, also, 20 of the senators will be women in the next senate. very interesting. quickly to the house of representatives where this is -- we have ateight more races outstanding. 233 republicans so far
. >> appreciate all the work you are doing. >> then back to boston to await returns with often eye on florida, ohio and virginia, team romney expects as they go, so will the nation. for months despite record spending, record campaign activity, record advertising, neither candidate really been able to break away from the other. tonight in boston there is optimism. hope, anxiousness. preparation for what could be a very late night that could spill in tomorrow or beyond. megyn, bret? >> thank you. >> bret: now to chief white house correspondent ed henry in chicago. sned >> good evening, bret. last night, the obama camp was predicting a blow-out. we got off the phone with the senior advisors saying they have to admit florida, virginia, and slew of battlegrounds are too close to call. >> president obama tried to displace calm and confidence today -- >> i expect we will have a good night. >> it was clear last night the magnitude of the moment set in. as he waits to find out whether he will secure his place in history as a transformational president or mere one-term wonder. >> he said yes, we can. a
. that about sums up the race in florida. this new nbc news/"wall street journal"/marist poll shows president obama with a two-point lead over mitt romney. that is well within the margin of victory, so basically we'll call it a dead heat, but when you go beyond the polls you see voters waiting for hours so they can cast their votes. there's been a lot of controversy over early voting in florida this year. it started a week ago and early voting ends day. our john zarella joins me now from plantation, florida. john, good morning. i understand that you voted yesterday. how long did you have to wait? >> reporter: yeah, you know, i did, and i'm really glad i voted yesterday because when i voted the line here was just back over there. i think, dominic, you can give them a shot of where i was standing, and it took me from the time i got in line to the time i walked out the door, two hours and ten minutes to vote, so if you look at where the line is now, which winds all the way around and down there, it's, we estimate, about 700 deep, and maybe about a four-hour wait for the folks to vote. it's nice
virginia and florida. so it could be a big win. and it also could be close. >> check those numbers bhap do you make of those states? is that a good list? >> i think the ceiling is somewhere 300, 303 if you want to be exact the numbers i've done. if you throw in north carolina it could be 318 max. that's possible. they could all be 51, 49 at the end of the day. i do want to say i think a lot of us, we're sort of victims of 2004. before 2004 we were all more convinced of the challenger incumbent rule. that somehow challengers always got the undecided and then a tie goes to the challenger. then you're happened when bush won frankly as many of the undecided as he did. then you'd have to go back to '76 the last time the person with momentum lost at the end. lost the popular vote. that was ford. ford had the momentum but carter won in the end. even gore, he had the last-second momentum. he did win the popular vote. having the momentum has it in the end. >> what's it going to mean for obama if obama wins it is the ground level organization. i was in an obama campaign headquarters on the outskirts
, invested time, invested money, did not pick up the state. what's important is virginia, florida and ohio. mike, you've got some inside dope on virginia and florida in particular. >> yeah. just to set the stage for the drama of the next hour or so, the mitt romney math starts in florida, virginia, then moves on to ohio. from the war rooms of both campaigns, virginia is -- [inaudible] obama. now, the states are very close in the actual count, and we're trying to be clear here on our coverage about when a state is actually called and what the campaigns are doing, but we're also trying to pull back the curtain a little bit for you on what the campaigns are thinking. before the calls are made, what we're hearing. and just to give you a sense of what the mood is among republicans tonight, one of the top republicans in the country just e-mailed me talking about 2014, says there's another race in two years. so that tells you that the top republicans are hearing things from various states that aren't encouraging. florida, where the romney math starts, 50/50. hundreds of votes out of millions cast
to succeed. >> after new hampshire, the president headed to florida and later this evening in the important swing state of ohio and time for a quick stop in colorado scheduled to speak at late night complain event there. governor romney began in des moines, iowa where he told voters, it's time to change the course of our nation. >> we're only two days away from a very different path, from a fresh start. two days away from a new beginning. beginning. >> and after iowa governor romney's team headed to cleveland. he just spoke at a rally there in pennsylvania as you heard and later tonight scheduled for a campaign event in virginia. a state with 13 crucial electoral votes. we have team coverage tonight. ed henry in cincinnati covering president obama first to carl cameron live in pa with a romney camp with the event just wrapping up. this is his first visit in a long time to pennsylvania and you wonder what the real strategy is here? >> it is, shep. weeks and weeks since he's been here and if it were only for this one event, then it might be a bit of a reach for mitt romney to expect to win a
enough votes in florida, virginia, and ohio to carry things over-the-top. they were talking with their get out the vote people, who said they were getting them out to the polls and we think we can carry this off. and suddenly puff. it has to be a bitter disappointment after six long years, the hours put in and the money spent. he dead his best not to show that in his concession speech as he appealed to his supporters to embrace the very best of america. >> we look to our parents, in the final analysis everything depends on the success of our homes. we look to job creators of all kinds, we are counting on you to invest, to hire, to step forward. and we look to democrats and republicans in government at all levels to put the people before the politics. >> reporter: it is unclear at this point whether or not governor romney will remain a leader in the republican party. the president says that he will invite him down to the white house to talk about the issues. either way, though it would appear that governor romney is likely to be the last of his generation to run for the presi
, we may be looking at another recession as well. >> reporter: his election campaign stops in florida, virginia, ohio and new hampshire are critical. while they carry a combined total of 62 electoral votes, any one of them could make or break his chances. and he's not finished yet. a top campaign official confirms he will make more stops on election day. back in ohio and in pennsylvania. a state romney suddenly sees moving his way. but complicating his message, his final targeted states feature unemployment rates that have plummeted in recent months. florida's governor rick scott says that's no thanks to the president. >> guess what? the biggest drop in unemployment in the country is in our great state of florida. and you know what? government didn't do it. you did it. >> what we see now is an administration and a presidency littered with broken promises. >> reporter: romney's running mate, paul ryan, who's largely stayed out of the spotlight in the final days of the campaign, has started to ratchet up the rhetoric. on a conference call with religious conservatives, ryan warned the pr
. president obama in places like florida and wisconsin. if it is a question of voting issues in florida, let's look at "the miami herald." election officials shut the doors to headquarters, angering voters, resuming the proceedings one hour later. the question here is on early voting in the state of florida. it was an attempt to allow more people to early vote, it devolved into chaos and confusion just days before the nation decide its next president. election officials -- host: so, questions there, in florida. let's cut to the phones and hear what you have to say. joe, the morning, iowa, good morning. caller: as far as the electoral college system, i disagree with that, it should be the popular vote. it is the people that it is about. host: you do not like the electoral college? caller: excuse me? call -- host: you do not like the electoral college. caller: yes. if you guys remember, ronald reagan said to trust, but verify. host: we are seeing that the candidates are paying attention to iowa. iowa certainly gets a lot of attention in the primary, but you are also seeing a lot of candidates
, that would be a bad sign to them. 8:00 is also florida. but they do not expect early returns but that's another state. they feel they have to do extremely well if they're going to be able to chip in to states like wisconsin, like iowa which doesn't close until 10:00 eastern time. so i would say these early southern states are... they are particularly watching. the advantage of virginia from their perspective in terms of prognosticating is that virginia has a history of being fairly rapid in getting its returns reported especially from northern virginia which is where at the very least the romney camp feels they have to cut into what might be a barack obama lead there. >> ifill: margaret warner in boston. stay warm if possible. we'll be talking to you all night long. and we have one more projection. this is in a u.s. senate race in vermont. bernie sanders the independent who caucuses with the democrats in vermont has been re-elected. before we look at some of the initial results in the senate races a word about our projections. the newshour doesn't call any race. it is our policy to re
